What Should I Do After a Car Accident in Texas?

  1. If you are involved in a traffic accident, the first thing you need to do is get help for someone who is injured. Many times the full extent of your injuries may not be apparent in the immediate aftermath of an accident. Your body may be in shock after a sudden collision. It is essential to seek medical treatment as soon as possible to determine the severity of your injuries.
  2. As soon as you are able, write down any information you can regarding the accident. You will want to obtain critical information from the other driver as well as any witnesses. Make a detailed record of what happened before, during, and after the collision. Take pictures at the scene and provide all of the information to an attorney.
  3. As soon as you can, contact an experienced Sugar Land car accident attorney. Be sure to provide a detailed account of the incident as well as any information regarding your injuries.

Even if you were partially at fault, you might still be able to recover damages. It is not your job to determine liability. Let our knowledgeable attorneys conduct an independent investigation of the accident and help you get the recovery you need.

Common Causes of a Car Accident

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), some of the most common causes of traffic collisions include:
  • Distracted driving (texting, cell phone use)
  • Speeding
  • Drug or alcohol impairment
  • Fatigued driving
  • Driver decision errors (Failing to stop at a red light, turning with obstructed view)

No matter the circumstances of your Sugar Land auto accident, you deserve a fierce legal advocate that will stand up to the insurance company and take your case to trial to get the results you deserve. At the Karam Law Office, we are results-driven, meaning we will not rest until you get the most favorable outcome in your case.

What Damages Are Available in an Auto Accident?

Under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code 16.003, you only have two years to bring a cause of action against someone for personal injury. Failure to bring your claim within the statute of limitations may result in your being denied recovery for damages. 

In a Texas car accident case, the amount that you can claim in damages will depend on the extent of your injuries and circumstances of your case. With the help of a leading auto accident lawyer, you may be able to recover both economic and non-economic damages. In rare cases, Texas allows for injury victims to collect exemplary damages designed to punish the liable party.

Chapter 41 of the Civil Practice and Remedies Code defines the types of damages allowed under Texas law.

Economic Damages

Are those “intended to compensate a claimant for actual economic or pecuniary loss.” Examples of economic damages include the cost of medical treatments, lost wages, and future loss of earnings.

Non-economic Damages

Are “awarded for the purpose of compensating a claimant for physical pain and suffering, mental or emotional pain or anguish, loss of consortium, disfigurement, physical impairment, loss of companionship and society, inconvenience, loss of enjoyment of life, injury to reputation and all other nonpecuniary losses of any kind other than exemplary damages.”

Exemplary Damages

These are “awarded as a penalty or by way of punishment but nor for compensatory purposes.” This generally applies when there is fraud, malice, or gross negligence and are limited in the amount that can be recovered.

Mr.Karam took care of me from the second we hung up on our first phone call. They provided me with the best medical care and the result of our case was amazing. He did not have to take my case but he chose to and the outcome was amazing. I’m still in shock considering what my case was, but would recommend their Firm 10,000 times again. Thank you so much to Jacob Karam and his office!

Both Jacob and his assistant, Bre, were highly respectful and professional, and they were readily available whenever we had any questions. We highly recommend The Karam Law Office for any legal concerns you may have.

When I first got in my car accident, I initially didn’t even consider a lawyer, but due to a referral I am so glad I did. I suffered significant injuries requiring surgery. Originally the hospital just slapped a sling on my broken clavicle and told me not to move it for 3 weeks while we wait for surgery. Jacob was able to get me into have surgery 4 days later. He handled everything. From my surgery to my PT. I never saw a single bill. His staff was friendly, professional and made it a point to check up on me. At a time where my life was turned upside down, it was nice to know someone else was in my corner, and my only job was to heal. 6 months later I am still healing but my case has already been settled and I got waaaayyyy more than I ever thought back in my pocket. It’s clear that Jacob and his team truly does care about the recovery and results of their clients and not just about collecting their fee. I am glad I went with Jacob and would recommend him to anyone. Calling his team was the best decision I could have made.
